Deadlock are singer-less, following the departure of Johannes Prem. A replacement for him has already been found and will be announced shortly, according to the band.
“After over 15 years of heavy music and being one of the founding members of Deadlock it is time to start a new chapter in my life,” says Prem.
“It was not an easy decision for me to split ways with my longtime friends but as life goes on everybody has to learn where to set his priorities,” the ex-singer continues. “Having a great job and a perfect little family there is simply not enough time to give Deadlock the attention and time it deserves.
“So it is time to say a big thank you to all the people I met during that time and to all those friends that will always be part of my life. Deadlock to me always was so much more than just music, it was all about a strong message, a lifestyle and being on the road and party with friends, but times are changing and so I will search for new ways to give my thoughts and emotions a voice.”
I never really got into Deadlock. I think I might have to look ‘em out and check ‘em out — give ‘em more of a listen.
“It was a great time to be on the road with best friends, sharing so many funny moments we will laugh about for the rest of our lives (Tobi and Gert know what I talk about), having a musical genius that gave my lyrics the base (thanx for that Sebastian), having a beautiful voice on my side, that became more and more to the Deadlock trademark (Thanx Sabine),” concluded Prem — which sounds like the name of a shampoo from the 1970s. “And thanks to all the people that worked for or with us troughout those years.”
